Interesting rifle. Didn't the Norwegian Krags differ from the American ones in having two locking lugs for the 6.5x55 round?

That is way cool! I'd love to hear more about it and see more pics of it. I've kept my eyes open for a nice old US Krag sporter for some time now. Seems most were converted to single shots or wildcats.

Lovely rifles! Just keep in mind that the Krag actions (the Norwegian at least) is not suitable for the modern pressurized 6,5x55 SM ammunition. I guess its the same with the 8x57 as well, they made a "8x57 Moderat" with a weaker load. There's also supposedly an issue with a change of POI in rain due to the locking lugs not being aligned - or something.

I'm no expert and have never fired a Krag myself even though I got a match version two stories down so take the above with a grain of salt as it's information I "grew up with".

Maybe someone else would correct me?
